Biomedical Engineering Research Core Laboratory

BMERCL advances knowledge in biomedical engineering by promoting interdisciplinary research and training among engineers, biologists, chemistsand physicians. It provides researchers with access various tools to carry out their research in Molecular and Cell Biology, Imaging, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering.

Biomedical Engineering Research Core Laboratory
Center for Advanced Materials

The Center for Advanced Materials (CAM) develops new materials leading to technologies of importance to the nation’s space program in its industry-academia-government partnership, and moves these and other materials advances into the commercial sector for economic and social benefit.

Center for Advanced Materials
Materials Characterization Facility

The Materials Characterization Facility (MCF) is part of the Texas Center for Superconductivity of the University of Houston (TcSUH). It specializes in micro-chemical/structural characterization of solid state materials by x-ray and electron beam techniques.

Materials Characterization Facility
UH Nanofabrication Facility

The University of Houston Nanofabrication Facility developed in cooperation with the Alliance for NanoHealth is a state-of-the-art cleanroom research facility equipped with an extensive toolset of nano/micro device prototyping and characterization.
